Community Initiatives Program (Section 356) Open for Applications

On display until 03 July 2020, 04:00 PM

Council’s Community Initiatives Program aims to improve community wellbeing and quality of life for Byron Shire residents.  Council invites applications for community driven initiatives that address a specific community need which builds a sense of community, and aligns with Council’s goals.

Guidelines, including the assessment criteria, and an application form, can be downloaded via the Community Initiatives Program page.

Applicants need to:

  • read the guidelines to understand if their organisation and project are eligible for funding;
  • show a matching contribution to the proposed project as outlined in the guidelines;
  • complete an application form on the template provided.

To assist applicants in developing their application, in lieu of a Funding Workshop, a range of online resources and tips can be accessed via the Community Initiatives Program page.  It is strongly recommended that potential applicants view the workshop resources to assist with their application.

Applications close: Friday 3 July at 4.00pm

Please note:  The canvassing of Councillors or Council staff in relation to this funding program will automatically result in disqualification of offending applicants.
